The Kaduna State chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has mourned the victims of the Abuja-Kaduna train attack of March 28.

Rev. John Hayab, the Chairman of the state chapter stated this on Wednesday while speaking with newsmen.

According to him, the attack had further amplified the vulnerability of people who used the train service either for business or for social.

He said the association commiserated with families of those who lost their lives in the attack.

“Even while banditry is a heinous crime, the bandits appear to have evolved an extended network for intelligence gathering and planning to fulfil their mission.

 “We call on the Federal Government to deploy everything at its disposal to crush the bandits who have had a field day in Kaduna State and elsewhere in Nigeria,’’ he said.

Hayab appealed to security agencies to employ innovative and professional strategies to deal with the situation and repudiate any political interference in security matters.

“A nation where mourning has become an everyday ordeal cannot be productive as the heart that mourns becomes fragile, unable to think, plan or organise well”.

Thereafter, he urged all Christians and people of goodwill in the state to continue to pray and to do the needful for peace to reign.

“Meanwhile, our hearts and prayers are with the bereaved families as we pray for God’s comfort. And to those who sustained injuries, we pray for quick recovery,’’ he said.
